Good news Bible : Today's English version by Bible Society of South Africa( Book )

22 editions published between 1976 and 1993 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Bible in Today's English Version is a new translation which seeks to state clearly and accurately the meaning of the original texts in words and forms that are widely accepted by all people who use English as a means of communication. This translation does not follow the traditional vocabulary and style found in the historic English Bible versions. Rather it attempts in this century to set forth the Biblical content and message in standard, everyday, natural form of English. The aim of this Bible is to give today's readers maximum understanding of the content of the original texts. The Preface explains the nature of special aids for readers which are included in the volume. It also sets forth the basic principles which the translators followed in their work. The Bible in Today's English Version was translated and published by the United Bible Societies for use throughout the world. The Bible Societies trust that people everywhere will not only find increased understanding through the reading and study of this translation, but will also find a saving hope through faith in God, who made possible this message of Good News for all people. - Foreword

Preliminary and interim report on the Hebrew Old Testament Text Project = Compte rendu préliminaire et provisoire sur le travail d'analyse textuelle de l'Ancien Testament hébreu by United Bible Societies( Book )

13 editions published between 1973 and 1979 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This preliminary and interim report of the international and interconfessional Committee of the Hebrew Old Testament Text Project, sponsored by the United Bible Societies, is both tentative and summary. It is being made available to Bible translators and scholars on a periodic basis, so as to provide a summary analysis of the continuing work of the Committee. Judgments recorded in this and subsequent reports are, however, subject to revision as the work of the Committee progresses. When the review of Old Testament textual problems is completed, a full scientific report will be published. This will consist of several volumes, in which will be presented a full list of the significant textual data, a complete discussion of the reasons which formed the basis for the decisions of the Committee, and more extensive advice to translators and exegetes concerning related problems of meaning. But in view of the urgent need to supply Bible translators with the preliminary judgments of the Committee on a wide range of textual problems (Old Testament translation committees are now at work in more than 150 languages) a summary listing of important problems, suggested solutions, and reasons for the textual decisions has been regarded as essential. - p. v of volume 1
